Heron's Shimmerbou is an innovative new fly tying material that we have just added to our catalog. Designed specifically to enhance the visual appeal and swimming action of flies, the Shimmerbou stands out with its unique features and impressive performance.
One of the standout qualities of the Shimmerbou is its construction. Each strand measures a mere 1/69" in thickness, ensuring an incredibly lightweight material that won't add unnecessary bulk to your flies. Despite its delicate appearance, the Shimmerbou is reinforced with nylon, adding an extra layer of strength and durability to withstand the rigors of fishing.
The hydrophobic nature of the Shimmerbou is a key factor that sets it apart from other flash. This means that the strands repel water, allowing your flies to maintain their buoyancy and natural movement in the water. This hydrophobic property also reduces water absorption, preventing the flies from becoming waterlogged and losing their effectiveness. This also helps you cast larger flies all day long without ending up with a bad shoulder like he one I have.
The Shimmerbou's most alluring characteristic is its irresistible shimmer. The metallic strands catch and reflect light, creating an enticing and lifelike appearance underwater. Whether you're imitating baitfish, shrimp, or other aquatic creatures, the shimmering effect adds a level of realism that can trigger aggressive strikes from fish.
With a generous quantity of 1000 strands per package, each measuring 10 inches in length, Heron ensures that fly tyers have more than enough material to work with. This abundance allows for endless creativity in creating patterns with varying density, length, and color combinations.
